André Pogoriloffsky is the pen name used by Andrei Covaciu- Pogorilowski for his book "The music of the Temporalists". He was born in Bucharest, Romania, in February 1968. Starting with 1982, he studied music independently, helped by several private professors. In 1989 A.P. started to hear in his head a strange yet beautiful music that he was unable to notate.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
